SFCC to offer tuition-free Missouri Manufacturing Technician training 

Sedalia, MissouriAug. 25, 2020 –State Fair Community College’s The LearningForce will offer tuition-free Missouri Manufacturing Technician I and II certification training through a combination of on-ground and online instruction from 3:30-6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays starting Sept. 16 through April 7. The training is valued at $6,000 per student.

Fifteen (15) tuition-free seats are available to any eligible U.S. citizen authorized to work in the U.S. On-ground classes will be conducted on the Sedalia campus and will be taught by a Manufacturing Skills Standard Council Certified Production Technician instructor. Because class size is limited to 15, early enrollment is recommended.

Technician I and II courses provide students with knowledge and hands-on skills needed to obtain employment in an entry-level manufacturing position such as materials handler, team assembler or basic machine operator. Both courses follow the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) curriculum guidelines and lead to industry-recognized credentials valued by manufacturing employers across the region.

By completing both Technician I and II training, students will earn an OSHA 10-creditial and will be prepared to take the MSSC Certified Production Technician (CPT) four-module exams.  Upon successful completion of all four MSSC CPT exams, students will earn MSSC CPT Certification in addition to the State Fair Community College-The LearningForce Certificate.

Before taking the courses, students are required to pass the ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Bronze Certificate (NCRC), which is an assessment-based credential issued at four levels. The NCRC measures and certifies the essential work skills needed for success in jobs across industries and occupations. The NCRC assessment fee is waived for those who qualify for no-cost tuition included in the course fees.
